Cystatins: The Multifaceted Protease Inhibitors pp. 1-40 $100.00
Authors:  (Medha Priyadarshini, Bilqees Bano, Dept. of Biochemistry, F/O Life Sciences, Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, U.P., India)
The cystatins constitute a large group of evolutionary related proteins with diverse biological activities and wide occurrence in tissues, targeting primarily papain-like cysteine proteases and parasitic proteases like cruzipain, but also mammalian asparaginyl
endopeptidase. The cystatin superfamily comprises a large group of the cystatin domain containing proteins divided into three main groups depending on the presence of single or multiple ‘cystatin domains’, and the presence or absence of a signal sequence. Family I the stefins are cytosolic, 11 kDa single chain proteins with no disulphide bonds or
carbohydrates, Family II- the cystatins are mainly extracellular, 13-15 kDa single chain proteins with two disulphide bonds but no carbohydrates and Family III- the kininogens are multidomain, blood plasma glycoproteins.
